The McGill Interactive Pediatric OncoGenetic Guidelines: An approach to identifying pediatric oncology patients most likely to benefit from a genetic evaluation

Goudie C, et al. Pediatr Blood Cancer. 2017.

The McGill Interactive Pediatric OncoGenetic Guidelines (MIPOGG) project aims to create an eHealth decision-support tool in the form of a smartphone/tablet application using algorithms to process clinical data and help determine whether to refer a child for genetic assessment based on the likelihood of an underlying cancer predisposition syndrome.

This paper discusses the initial stages of the project, focusing on its overall structure, the methodology underpinning the algorithms, and the upcoming algorithm validation process.
